Description & Analysis

Of the three steel cent issues, the San Francisco Mint edition is slightly scarcer than the others, but it is certainly not rare. Collectors should use care in selecting just the right coin, as steel cents had striking issues that were seemingly unique to this composition. Among the problem areas is the final numeral of the date, which is often weak or even filled in altogether. The example illustrated, while sharp at its centers, reveals weakness at the word WE and the rim opposite it on the reverse.

A bold doubled-die obverse variety is recognized under NGC's VarietyPlus Service. Doubling is most evident at the date.
